North Bay Animal Services Donation Drive

Mrs. Cratty’s second graders are having a donation drive for North Bay Animal Services. It starts next Tuesday. It will be from November 13th through the 16th. The animal shelter needs wet and dry dog and cat food such as Friskies. They also need paper towels, blankets, and cat litter. They have a Facebook page with a link to Amazon, so you can choose exactly what they need. Each classroom will have a container to place donations. Money or gift cards will be placed in an envelope. Make a difference and donate.

Early Pick Ups

We recognize that many families leave on the weekends for various events, appointments, and trips. However, when students are picked up early from school, they miss valuable class time and often assessments. These assessments need to be made up and time can very limited during the school day. We kindly ask you to please schedule appointments and departures after school hours. Thank you!

Conference Weeks-Early Dismissal

November 5th-9th and November 13th-16th are parent-teacher conference weeks at school. Grades 1-6 will be dismissed at 12:45 pm and Kindergarten will be dismissed at 11:40 am every day. Regular dismissal times will resume on November 26th, after Thanksgiving Break.
